Omnia System & Modules

Control Module

The OMNIA Control Module is the heart of the system and the fundamental building block for all OMNIA systems. It is one of the most diverse modules in the industry. True plug-and-play modular hardware means you simply plug units together and all the power and communication cabling is done for you, with just one click.

The ability to plug several reader modules into one Access Portal controller is termed ‘clustering’, creating a highly cost-effective solution as one cluster controller can manage up to eight reader modules and 16 readers – no longer are you constrained to one controller per door.

As a system controller, it provides offline functionality with a full on-board copy of the OMNIA database, multiple modes simplify site specifications and installations, meaning it can operate independently, when needed.

Omnia Wiegand Reader Module

The OMNIA Wiegand Reader Module is the only door controller hardware you should ever need on your site.  Reader modules simply clip into the cluster controller for one of the most rapid installation procedures ever seen.  With just one click, your power and communication cabling is done.  This unit supports the entire Amano Wiegand reader range as well as most third party Wiegand readers including long-range readers, License Plate Cameras with Wiegand output, UHF with key fob transmitters, magstripe, barcode, parking and vehicle tag readers and much more.

The Omnia Wiegand Reader Module Features:

  • ARM Cortex M0 Processor operating at 45MHz
  • Hot Swappable
  • Dual Reader Ports
  • Two SPDT 10A Relay

Omnia Capabilities & Use Cases

Omnia System Dashboard

The dashboard provides the ability to personalize your working area to suit your specific needs – from an IP camera feed, to quick enroll or live transaction feed – you choose how you work best.  The system incorporates a powerful zoning tool for enhanced people movement control and, when coupled with the extensive reporting functions, enables you to quickly see what’s happening on your premises.  The software also provides a wide array of standard reports, as well as the means for you to generate customized reports for single or multiple site management

An open API allows for integrations with other 3rd party applications such as fire systems, elevator systems, CCTV systems.  Many other applications, such as Nurse Call, Parcel Pending, or wireless locks have also been integrated into OMNIA.

Threat Level Detection

Threat level provides the opportunity for you to change the access rights to your site, depending on your changing security needs. There are four different threat levels – low, elevated, high and severe. By changing the threat level, all previous patterns are automatically overridden. This enables you to change your entire site, or a specific area or building, to increase or reduce additional identification requirements. For example, in a situation of potential damage or violence, the threat level may be raised to severe and authentication for all entry points requires biometrics, pin and tag.

Threat level can also be used to drive relays or inputs for any third party devices, to create a sequence of events such as the setting of a high threat level results in an alarm being triggered, flashing lights and siren.

Remote Door Unlock

Instantly open a door relay simply by clicking the unlock feature in both the Live! transaction viewer and the reader view.

This valuable feature means that an authorized person can now quickly open a door when noticing a denied transaction, or under pre-determined event sequences. Security is still assured.

Scheduled Tours

The remote management of scheduled functions, such as a guard undertaking a routine patrol of the property, or cleaners undertaking their duties, can be managed through scheduled tours.

The route is plotted for the required staff to follow along with time parameters. The staff must “tag-in” at the required areas and time. If the routine is not followed, or completed an event is created. All tours, whether completed or not, are recorded in the database for full auditability and reporting.

Tagholder Image Tags

Organizations frequently require more than one form of identification on record. Through the tagholder image record, you can save up to three images per tagholder. This could be a photograph, a driver’s license and an identity card, which provides for enhanced site security.

The documents are scanned and are allocated and stored against the relevant tagholder (person). The default image will also be shown in the Live! transaction viewer screen – when an operator clicks on the view, all three images assigned to the tagholder can be viewed
